Thank you, from me

I posted this elsewhere, but wanted to post it here as well, since this is where I found out a lot of great information and it made me do more research and ask more intelligent questions of my doctors. I want to thank all of you wonderful wonderful women for all of the support and care that you have shown me in the past 2+ months. It means more than you may ever know, or maybe most of you know how much it means to have this kind of support!!

I have had two, count em, two NORMAL cycles! I don't know what's going on with me, but right now, I am in no mood to have the surgery! I am revelling in the wonder of having two periods that didn't just kill me or have me in bed for days on end. My last cycle was 47 days, which is a little shorter than they were before, but my period was very uncomplicated, I didn't flood, there was an acceptable amount of clotting that didn't throw me to the floor with pain! This cycle was 28 days!!!!! I can't put enough ! into that sentence! I have never EVER had a 28 day cycle and we are amazed and awed! I ovulated and didn't have major pain during or afterwards. I knew when I ovulated and kept marveling at the timing, day 13?? I have a 15 day luteal phase and counted down the days in disbelief. Even my doctor is amazed and amused.

I know this is probably a freak occurance, but I am willing to go with it and put off all surgery talk for as long as this lasts!! Here is the interesting part, I started exercising again, with a gusto, a month and a half ago. I am not extremely overweight, about 15lbs and not in shape at all. I could stand to lose and tone up. My doctor is attributing this sudden change to the exercise regimen! We'll see... but it sure as heck is incentive to keep going on with what I have been doing! I feel so much better and haven't had almost any pain this whole month! My period cramps were somewhere in the middle of the scale, but didn't have me running for the pain killers. It was manageable with Tylenol! the OTC type!!

I am running off at the fingers. I just wanted to let you who have shown me such great support that I might be scarce here and hopefully will never need to go "to the other side" and be a real sister here. It might be another pipe dream, but I will live it for as long as possible and hope that the cancer never returns! There will always be that fear, but since learning that my type of cancer can return even after a hyster, I've been trying to find ways around having the surgery. I might as well keep what I have and hope for the best rather than messing with it and still having the same fears. And as long as the pain isn't as bad as it was for so many months, I will be satisfied just hanging in there and seeing what happens.

Take care ladies, I wish you all the best of everything in life!

Go for it Zelda. Any surgery is major and if you can get by without having it , that is great. Keep up the exercising I hope everything goes really well for you. Best of luck x x

Hi Zelda,
It sounds as though you have weighed the pros and cons carefully in your mind and have come to a decision you are happy with.
Thats great! I wish you nothing but good health, and happiness in your life.

I read a couple of your other posts, and it sounds as though you have been through some rough times over the past few years.

You deserve some peace and contentment in your life my dear. You have been through more in the past few years than most go through in their lives.

Health and Happiness to you Zelda,
Do drop in from time to time and let us all know how you are doing!!!

Take care,
